Run the Race


In this episode I interview Chris Dowling.  Chris is the director and co-writer of RUN THE RACE. 

Chris is a writer, producer and director known for his work on such films as WHERE HOPE GROWS and PRICELESS and the television series Repo Games.

In RUN THE RACE, two desperate brothers sacrifice today for a better tomorrow.

Reeling from his mother’s death and his father’s abandonment, Zach, an All-State athlete, finds glory on the football field, working to earn a college scholarship and the brothers’ ticket out of town.

When a devastating injury puts Zach—and his dreams—on the sidelines, David laces up his track cleats to salvage their future and point Zach toward hope.

In theaters February 22nd, RUN THE RACE shows what’s possible when you run to—instead of from—the overwhelming love of God.

Check out the latest issue of Faith & Fitness Magazine to learn more about the movie RUN THE RACE.

A Love so Mighty: A True Story of God's Transforming Presence

ALoveSoMighty.jpg

In this episode I interview Erinn J. Campton.  She is the author of the newly released book "A Love so Mighty:  A true Story of God's Transforming Presence.  Erinn has written elaborate tales since the first time her mother handed her a crayon. She walked with Jesus even before then and could not imagine a life apart from Him. Her best days are spent in a cuddle pile with a little boy and three semi-naughty canines while her soulmate is nearby tinkering in his garage. Born and raised in Northern Colorado, she is closest to our Lord when sitting on a mountain beside a river with a cup of coffee in one hand and a book in the other.

Increase Your Energy and Change the World

In this episode I discuss how we can increase our energy level by changing our internal state of being.  When we go from being stuck in negative emotions to living from a place of joy, gratitude and appreciation our energy level and outlook on life improves dramatically.  The only way to change our life and the world around us is to change our energy.

Just Keep Showing Up

Just Keep Showing Up

This podcast episode is about patience and perseverance.  Half the battle when making lifestyle changes it to "just keep showing up."

I have adopted this mantra for my personal training clients, “just keeping showing up.”  A quote from Woody Allen says, “Eighty percent of success is just showing up.”  I love that quote and believe it to be true.  So many of my clients have stopped and started an exercise and nutrition program so many times over the years, they come to me lacking self-confidence and full of fear that they are going to “fail” again.   Tune into this episode and learn how to overcome the fear of failure and just keep showing up.
